It's a past-time and a passion that drives wildlife and habitat conservation efforts while creating jobs and economic opportunity for thousands of our citizens. Most importantly, it's a funding system that works to sustain and improve the resources as well as the people who cherish it." - Idaho  Governor Otter.  Please see the official Proclamation below
